TAKE TRADITIONAL TAEKWONDO TO AN EXTREME LEVEL WITH ATA XTREME.
Mike Chat, an accomplished competitive martial artist and ATA Fourth Degree Black Belt who played one of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers on TV, created ATA Xtreme (also known as XMA or Xtreme Martial Arts.)
He describes the program as “the ability to perform highly skilled moves and also the ability to perform basic moves and make them look spectacular!”
This is why XMA is not only for the elite level athletes and competitors but also for beginners at the entry level as well.
It is the look in one’s eyes and the position of one’s body that tells the story.
XTREME Martial Arts
Strong Mind and Body
It’s not only about punching and kicking or jumping and flipping, but more, showing strength through the mind as well as the body. To stand planted with your feet on the ground and command the attention of the audience without sound or movement, using only the look in your eyes and the strength of your stance, actually shows more power than any punch, kick or flip. That’s Xtreme!
Build Confidence & Self-Esteem
With XMA we train and condition our bodies to test our physical limits, but at the same time, through this training, we also develop mental strength and tenacity to aid in overcoming physical challenges. Life presents us with many obstacles on all different levels and XMA is here to help you feel more confident in dealing with these challenges, mentally, physically and emotionally.
One of the main benefits of Martial Arts is improving your strength and balance. Martial Arts consists of punching and kicking, which helps practitioners strengthen both upper and lower body muscles. Martial Arts utilizes your core strength while working on your flexibility and power. Martial Arts can also help greatly improve coordination and endurance.
Obesity is a serious problem in the United States, so a brand new workout to your routine will greatly help. At Colleyville ATA Martial Arts, we know the importance of a healthy mind and body, so introducing yourself to martial arts is a great way to combat obesity and promote weight loss. In Martial Arts, you’ll burn hundreds of calories in each class, develop lean muscles, and boost flexibility. Martial Arts is a high-energy training class that is great for weight loss.
Confidence Building/Good Example
Colleyville ATA Martial Arts is dedicated to empowering you with the confidence and self-esteem needed to succeed in everyday life. Martial Arts can bring out the positive qualities that have always been a part of you, whether that is inner calm, positive mental attitude, patience, or self-discipline. Martial Arts will help you overcome fear, anger, and self-doubt, and leave you feeling confident in any situation.
Variety Workouts/Stress Relief
Martial Arts helps build mental toughness, teaches the value of hard work, and gives you the persistence you need in everyday life. Many members at Colleyville ATA Martial Arts have said that Martial Arts is also a great stress relief from school or work because it helps take their mind off problems they are facing so they can focus all their thoughts on striking the target in front of them. It is a workout where you have to have the endurance to execute all the various kicks and punches until the end of class. By engaging your brain during class, Martial Arts can help provide a completely different workout that you won’t find anywhere else.
